2 minute read


As summer starts coming to a close, and the back-to-school shopping begins, we thought we’d share some of our best tips and tricks before the new school year. Get your cameras ready and start bribing your kids with ice cream because we are coming at you with some photoshoot ideas!

Chalk Announcements

Chalk is the perfect, playful touch to announce what grades your kids are entering. Not only does it add some fun colors to your picture, but if you get your kids involved, they could actually get excited for the photoshoot!

Get Outside

We suggest moving the photoshoot outside. You’ll get natural lighting, a nice backdrop, and some fresh air for your kids.

Our Favorite Props

When thinking of what props to incorporate into the photoshoot, think all things classroom! Desks, books, pencils, globes, and apples are all great options to liven up the pictures.

Jump In, Parents!

Getting ready for a new year of school is not just significant for the kids, it’s a milestone for the whole family. So parents, we recommend you join in on the fun and capture these precious memories (just don’t steal the spotlight)!

These photoshoot ideas are sure to catch some priceless moments of your family. If you want to see these ideas in action, take a look at this video!
